COOKIE POLICY


1.WHY WE USE COOKIES


This website uses it’s own cookies and third-party cookies to offer visitors a better browsing experience and services adapted to needs and interests of each user. If you continue to access this website, we will consider that you gave your consent for the use of cookies.

The cookies used on our website offer us valuable information necessary to improve your experience while navigating by compiling anonymous statistics which help us to understand how you interact with our web pages. These cookies allow us to improve the structure and content of our website while protecting the visitors' personal identity.



2. WHAT IS A COOKIE?


A cookie is a file which contains letters and numbers, and which is saved on your computer, mobile phone or other mobile devices that are able to access our website once we obtain your consent to our use of cookies.


A cookie is installed at the request issued by the browser of a web server (for example, Internet Explorer, Chrome, etc.), and is completely "passive," meaning it does not contain software, viruses or spyware, and it can not access information from a computer's hard drive. The cookies themselves do not request personal data for processing, and in most cases, they do not identify the internet users.

There are two important categories of cookies:

1. Cookies of temporary sessions (–). These cookies are stored temporarily in the web browser's cookies folder so that this may retain them until the user exits that particular website and closes the browser's window. These cookies are temporary and they will be deleted once the browser is closed.

2. Persistent cookies (2013) These cookies are stored on a computer's hard drive or other devices, and generally they depend on the life span pre-established for the cookie. This type of cookie "persists" in your computer for a pre-established period of time after the closing of the session. The persistent cookies also include those placed by third- parties which can be used anonymously for the purpose of storing a user's interests, so that relevant marketing information may be provided to the user.



3. WHAT IS THE LIFE SPAN OF A COOKIE?


The life span of a cookie can significantly vary, depending on the purpose for which it was placed. Some cookies are used exclusively for a single session (session cookies), and they are not retained once the user has closed the website, while other cookies are retained and reused every time the user returns to that specific website (persistent cookies). However, cookies can be deleted by a user at any time by accessing the browser's settings.




4. WHAT ARE THIRD-PARTY COOKIES?


Certain content sections from our website are provided by third-parties or suppliers, for example, chat, video, etc.

These third-parties can also place cookies through a website, and they are defined as "third-party cookies" because they are not placed by the owner of that particular website. Third-party suppliers must also adhere to the rules and regulations of the confidentiality policy, as designated by the website's owner.
